Quantum weirdness alters basic cause-effect relations

Tue, Dec 12, 2017
Why do things happen? What causes Nature to behave the way we observe it to? These are among the most fundamental questions in science and philosophy. If interventions are available, one can modify a system, observe the effects of such modifications, and, from those effects, infer cause-effect...
